June 1 marks National Heimlich Maneuver Day, a day dedicated to recognizing a vital technique that can potentially save someone from choking. The Heimlich maneuver involves applying an abdominal thrust by positioning your fist slightly above the navel of a choking individual. Using your other hand, you grip your fist and forcefully push it inward and upward, aiming to dislodge the obstructing object and restore normal breathing.
